Random Funny Pictures

Most people think that Pete is all easy-going and sweet, but this picture is a little glimpse of his stinker side. We gave him a mohawk to fit his attitude this night, as he thought he was pretty cool stuff with a room full of college students visiting from the States. I thought this facial expression was too funny.

And do you think this dog is amazing or what?! Pete spends 2/3 of his awake hours laying with, patting, sharing toys or following her around. She lets Pete do just about anything he wants and he is actually really gentle with her, without too much harassment. We are pretty sure Pete would sleep in here with her, if we would only let him.

My Birthday Surprise!

This is how I picked up my birthday package from Heath at the post office here. They escorted us into a back room in the post office, apologizing the whole way. I wasn't the least bit upset, I am just so surprised they didn't trash it after demolishing the package! Heath tried to surprise me with some treats from America -- rainbow chip icing for a birthday cake, prunes, and a new faucet for my kitchen so I can keep the window open to keep cooler! All arrived here in Kigali, only as you can see, it was somehow smashed to pieces. You better believe that I came home an salvaged every bit of icing I could - opened with ants on it or not! Thank you to my sweet husband for thinking of me and to my sister for sending it on. Jessica asked what she could have done differently to package it better and I told her the only safe bet would be to send it in a corrugated steal box next time! :)
